Appsfactory is a certified Livingdocs partner – another offering within the Software as a Service portfolio
Munich, 2 June 2022 – Appsfactory has been a certified Livingdocs partner since January
2022. Livingdocs is the provider of a content creation and publishing system.
Appsfactory provides media customers with certified experts who offer holistic solutions
ranging from consulting to implementation. These can be tailored precisely to the individual
needs and challenges of the respective editorial team. For Appsfactory, Livingdocs is
another building block that dovetails perfectly with its “Software as a Service” strategy.
Development of digital products in the media industry
“Digital offerings will continue to generate an increasing share of revenues in the media
industry,” explains Jan Nowak, VP Media & AI at Appsfactory. “Providing users with an
enriching reading experience in the long term logically requires excellent digital products.”
Software as Service is particularly well suited for SMEs
“We have observed that medium-sized publishing houses in particular can build very well on
business models based on the so-called ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) principle in the
context of digital transformation,” explains Dr Alexander Trommen, CEO at Appsfactory.
SaaS combines the best of both worlds: The software and IT infrastructure are operated by
an external IT service provider and used by the client as a service, which is why the client
has full editorial control. “The advantage of a SaaS solution is that the offering is based on
the intensity of use – in short: pay as you go and pay as you grow. The client does not have
to purchase special hardware or pay expensive licence fees, while maintenance and
upgrades are provided by us,” continues Dr Trommen.

intelligence, personalisation and a 4-star-plus app rating guarantee, we’re helping mid-
market publishers create a whole new user experience. We offer a 360° solution for all digital
products from desktop and mobile to car and wearable apps,” Nowak concludes.
